          I liked my stay at the Carlton George because it was in the centre of Glasgow. I do not drive so it was very easy for me to get there either by bus or train and be able to walk to the hotel. Also it was easy to get to other places because of the close proximity of the bus and train stations. The food in the Windows Restaurant was wonderful.

          I like dthe fact that the hotel was in the city centre. We were having a night out at the concert hall and it was literally round the corner. Also liked the fact you can park the car at the Buchanan Galleries and the hotel have a special price (£10 per 24hrs) arranged.

          Not a dislike as such but the night we were there it was very muggy and we couldnt get the air conditioning to go cold. Even with the fan at the top setting it was bearly a breeze of lukewarm air. Also the pillows were kind of flat and hard, not very plumsious, but the mattress was excellent!

          The location of the hotel is excellent, right in the city centre. The executive lounge is an absolute gem and a bonus. The staff tending you in the lounge are very pleasant and helpful. A lovely relaxing atmosphere. Would love to try the restaurant on our next visit.

          I would have liked the room we were in (executive room) to have been a bit brighter, additional lamps, or dimmer switches. Being at the back of the building the noise from the generator was noticeable, but certainly wouldn't put us off staying there again.

          A warm, pleasant and efficient welcome from reception staff. Impressed with room size and complimentary facilities. Location superb for shopping and the concert hall. Would stay here again. Recommended
